Stade Municipal Oberkorn – stadium description
Construction of a new stadium to replace the outdated predecessor began in May 2011. This time three football fields and one stand weren’t a separate scheme, but part of a larger PPP project (€21 million worth) that also delivered new swimming pool and multi-level car park for 549 vehicles.
Since its opening in the summer of 2012 the stadium has been used by two clubs on various occasions, the larger Differdange for more prestigious games and more local CS Oberkorn on a regular basis. While domestic capacity exceeds 2,000 with standing room around the field, UEFA capacity it 1,800 at the main grandstand.
Just a few months after opening Differdange authorities suggested to build a larger north side and an east end too (west side is limited by rail) to create a 8,200-capacity national stadium for Luxembourg. The plan was economically viable at just €13 million, but was eventually dropped.
